Abstract

Digital media gives people access to a wealth of information and has a big influence on how modern society is shaped. Understanding the impact of digital media requires an understanding of three key concepts: information, interpretation, and surveillance. Information is defined as data and facts disseminated via digital media. Its significance stems from its capacity to enlighten, instruct, and involve people. Making sense of information and assessing its importance are all part of interpretation. Surveillance is the keeping an eye on things and gathering information with the goal of using it to manipulate or control people or groups. While there are advantages to information, interpretation, and surveillance, there are also significant drawbacks. These include questions about the accuracy of the information, potential biases and restrictions in interpretation, and privacy and security issues with surveillance. Digital media must be viewed critically, with information, interpretations, and practices related to surveillance being assessed.
